# What was the date 120 weeks ago?

## Saturday February 26, 2022

0

120 weeks ago from today was 26 Feb 2022, a Saturday. Anytime we’re subtracting halves of the year, we need to ensure that we’re still in 2024. It looks like 120 weeks from now will bring us back to pre 2023 and we’ll need to factor this into our subtraction because it will change the calendar and fiscal years. For larger calculations like this, I start by subtracting total days, then counting backwards 840 days on a calendar until getting my solution of Saturday February 26, 2022.

## How we calculated 120 weeks before today

All of our day calculators are measured and QA'd by our engineer. Read more about the Git process here. But here's how 120 weeks ago gets calculated on each visit:

1. We started with date inputs: used current day of 15 Jun, then set the calculation - 120 weeks, and factored in the year 2024
2. Noted your current time of year: 120 weeks in June will bring us back to May or further.
3. Counted backwards weeks from current day: date - 15 Jun, factoring in the 15 days left in June to calculate Saturday February 26, 2022
4. Did NOT factor in workdays: In this calculation, we kept weekend. See below for just workdays or the fiscal calendar

### Tips when solving for February 26

• Current date: 15 Jun
• Day of the week: Saturday
• New Date: Saturday February 26, 2022
• New Date Day of the week: Saturday
• Remember February has 28 or 29 days depending on Leap Year! This may not impact time in the past, but it will impact future dates.
• This calculation crosses at least one month. Remeber, this will change our day of the week.
• The solution crosses into a different year.
• Your date will be a weekend. Consider if you only want workdays in your calculation.

## Ways to calculate 120 weeks ago

1. Calculate it: Start with a time ago calculator. 120 weeks is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the 15 days in June + all number of days in each month and the number of days in . Simply add your weeks and choose the length of time, then click "calculate". This calculation does not factor in workdays or holidays (see below!).
2. Use June's calendar: Begin by identifying 15 Jun on a calendar, note that it’s Saturday, and the total days in May (trust me, you’ll need this for smaller calculations) and days until last year (double trust me, you'll need this for larger calculations). From there, count backwards 120 times weeks by weeks, subtracting weeks from until your remainder of weeks is 0.
3. Use excel: For more complex weeks calculations or if you h8 our site (kidding), I use Excel functions like =TODAY()-120 to get or =WORKDAY(TODAY()), -120, cell:cell) for working weeks.

## Working weeks in 120 calendar weeks

120 weeks is Saturday February 26, 2022 or could be if you only want workdays. This calculation takes 120 weeks and only subtracts by the number of workdays in a week. Remember, removing the weekend from our calculation will drastically change our original Saturday February 26, 2022 date.
